Stan,

This is one of those, "search me," things.  I suspect you have tripped over a very recent development in web coding, as new objects are constantly coming into existence, and this is how same is exposed to the screen reader.

I really can't say that there is anything clear about why that is, or what, precisely that means.  This appears to be it, though:  https://www.w3schools.com/bootstrap/bootstrap_carousel.asp

Hello all, I have a question here. 
I updated to Windows 11 a long time ago and one thing that I realized is that one of my favorite features is gone. In Windows 10, there is a feature that I really like and that is one has the ability to open a file location where a file is saved from the start menu and in Windows 11, this feature seemed to be found nowhere. 
I want to know How I can accomplish the same task with Windows 11?
Thanks

Are you saying the link you provided to the actual opinion article being announced as a Carousel link?

I get to the article, and the photo (for lack of a better description) is a very new thing that's not the classic slideshow, but does move between two images.

I'm not sitting at a Windows 11 machine at the moment, but most of my "old favorites" are found by activating the last item in the context menu, which is something like "more actions" (that's probably not the exact wording).

I use "Send to" quite a bit, and that's where it is.

au contraire!

as mentioned, there is Pontes Media Downloader which doesn't seem to download videos as quickly as it once did, but there also is TCA Media Downloader:
https://tecnoconocimientoaccesible.blogspot.com/2021/12/tca-mediadownloader-24-mejorado-ahora.html

there are links beyond the end of the description to download a tutorial done in Spanish, there's no English version), the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of the program, and libraries for Linux.

once downloaded and unzipped, and after running it, the first thing to do is shift+tab to and space bar on the Menú Button, down arrow to and spacebar on Opciones.
you will be on the General tab, tab to Seleccione un idioma para la aplicación: Combo box, and down arrow to Inglés. tab to and spacebar on the Aceptar Button.
you will then be faced with a statement "Se cambio el idioma y la aplicación tiene que reiniciarse (Changed the language and the application has to be restarted.).", in which you will press spacebar on the Aceptar Button again.

some of the following changes you will run in to might still be in Spanish as the developer has not gotten around to translating them into English, but most of it will be in English once you set the language to Inglés.
have fun exploring.

Control Panel, Power Options, then for whatever power plan you're actually using (the one with the radio button active/pressed), activate its Change plan settings link.

In the plan settings dialog are the dropdown boxes for how long before the display is turned off, and how long before the device sleeps.  If the computer is a laptop, these things are shown separately for when the computer is on battery power versus when it is plugged in.

Ans since GUIs tend to be not quite standardised enough to work with ease with screen-readers all of the time, the command line is pretty much a most obvious solution for anyone who can’t see to use a GUI. it really couldn’t’ be easier once you get the hang of it.

And of course, system administrators still use command line all the time, for all sorts of things. No reason why other computer users shouldn’t/cant’ do the same.

moderated Re: Some questions regarding using VLC media , burning and ripping a CD using this application

JM Casey
 

Even though you’re absolutely right, I must say, VlC as a video player is great and that’s pretty much what I use it for. If you’re not interested in playing video files and DVDs, I probably would indeed use something else, particularly as it’s really difficult nowadays to get things like the all /full preferences screen to read with a screen-reader. Immensely powerful and robust programme, but not always the most convenient to use. There are craploads of keyboard commands, but it’s necessary to remember them and since there’s very little feedback from your screen reader, you just have to know what you are doing.

Personally, I'm with Curtis on this one.  I have never liked VLC's Windows application implementation.  It just seems to me to be insanely complicated compared to any one of a number of other options.  Now, mind you, if you need some of the myriad features that come with VLC, it's wonderful, but if all I'm doing is playing and/or ripping CDs, Windows Media Player is just so much easier for those tasks.  It still ships with Windows 10.  I just set up a Windows 11 machine here at home the other day so I'll have to check whether it's still hidden "in the bowels of Windows 11" just like it was in 10.

For anyone new to VLC I strongly suggest you open Help in the Help Menu then go to the links given at the very outset of their help file.  I am copying and pasting the pertinent section from that Help here:

You can find VLC documentation on VideoLAN's wiki website.

If you are a newcomer to VLC media player, please read the
Introduction to VLC media player.

You will find some information on how to use the player in the
"How to play files with VLC media player" document.

For all the saving, converting, transcoding, encoding, muxing and streaming tasks, you should find useful information in the Streaming Documentation.

If you are unsure about terminology, please consult the knowledge base.

To understand the main keyboard shortcuts, read the shortcuts page.

Help

Before asking any question, please refer yourself to the FAQ.
-------------
If you consult one or more of the above noted sources, you can and will find almost anything one could need to know about VLC and how to use it.  There are resources aimed at the new user through the expert level, so choose accordingly.  The FAQ is something that should be looked at.
